It is all ok because it is legal, just like the Group Areas Act.

Achmed: Why is my extension illegal?

Schlomo: Did I say your extension is illegal? Sorry, I should have been more specific. I meant the whole house.

Achmed: The house has been here since 1962!

Schlomo: And that's the problem. It's much too close to that settlement, there.(gestures)

Achmed: That one? The one built in 1975?

Schlomo: No, I meant that one.

Achmed: The one build in 1990?

Schlomo: Yes. As you can see, we've been very lenient.

One ironic thing is that if they had doubled up and only lived in half the 80 houses - or roughly 40 people in each one instead of the mere 20 per house as it was - they would have only lost half as much in the demolition, because the other 40 houses would have been empty.
